Brewer Face Daunting Western Trip

There have been contending teams that have gone out West in the season's final weeks and have come back buried.. Its where pennant hopes sometimes die. I remember one of my first year's covering the Brewers, in 1983, they left in late August, a half game out of first place,lost nearly every game on the trip. They were an afterthought when they returned to Milwaukee..

The Brewers start a nine game road trip tonight in San Diego. They cannot afford any 2 and 7 trip by the time they return home on September 4. They seem like a resilient team and have been able to fend off any challengers. They have survived injuries and a mid season seven game losing skid to find themselves still in control of the division. In some ways, they have been surprising that they haven't relinguished the lead yet.. Im hoping it stays that way thru these next nine games..
